Why Register For The OPEN At Calibrated?
- It’s FUN!
– At Calibrated, we dedicate every Saturday morning to the Open workouts for all registered members. We assign heats, we print score sheets, we assign judges – we make it a big deal. But we also keep it fun. We chant unintelligible words and if we’re lucky we get to see Brittany Smith dance goofy. It immediately bonds us because it feels like we’re going to battle together in a light hearted way. We’re all nervous, but when we put our hands in the circle and yell at the top of our lungs, it is our buy-in to the team. It roots us deeper into our community.
- Yes, You Are Good Enough.
– Even if you cannot do the exact prescribed weight of any or most of the Open workouts, you will most likely surprise yourself with what you are able to pull off. The Open is about calling on the best in yourself no matter your current level. Most likely you are physically stronger than your mind lets you believe.
- It Gets You Competing Again
– Many of us competed as kids whether on an organized team or just racing siblings to the car. Some of you may have competed in college. When we become adults, we often feel like we need to retire that side of us. Sure, we compete for jobs and accounts and other “grown up” things, but more often than not, we have forgotten the thrill of physical competition. We may not be a win-at-all cost type – and this certainly is not the only kind of competitor – but there is something about putting yourself on the line that sparks inspiration.
Additional Info about Registration and Competing at Calibrated
- February 15thwill be the last day to register for the OPEN if you plan on completing the OPEN at Calibrated. First workout announcement is Thursday (Feb 21st). I need this 1-week grace period to properly plan and organize the logistics of this years open. We will be creating teams of 15-20 people this year. Each team will have a captain and Each week the team will be rewarded points for various things like….completing the workout, participating in the teams weekly theme, top scores in rx, scaled, and age divisions, etc. Most points are generated just from participation but there will be performance-based points awarded.
- The Heat & Judging Schedules will be posted every Thursday Evening by 11pm on our Calibrated “Members Only” Facebook page and our Website (WOD/BLOG).
- Heat Times will be from 8:00am – 12:30pm every Saturday. This may slightly vary each week based off the workout released!
- There will be NO regular Saturday classes during the 5 weeks of the OPEN.
- Any registered athlete not able to attend the upcoming Saturday must email firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday evening of each week to reschedule. If you do not email me by this time, you cannot reschedule.
- WE WILL NEED A LOT OF JUDGES! 30-40 judges will be needed and help things run smoothly
- 1-2 heats is all that is asked of you for the weeks that you can help out.
- Signing up to be a judge does NOT mean you have to judge every week. Just the week that is convenient for you!
- All that we ask of the judges is to be ready when your heat is called and to uphold the integrity of the standards of each workout.
- PLEASE EMAIL ME AT ARJUNA@CALIBRATEDTRAINING.COM IF YOU ARE A JUDGE OR WOULD LIKE TO BE A JUDGE!
- Being a judge just means you count someone reps and mark down there scores correctly.
